I removed the passage "(an unusual condition for a museum ship, typically decommissioned after years in mothball fleets" becasue ACACIA did not HAVE machineguns, nor her aft 5-inch gun, which were removed after the US/Canadian Border demilitrization (during the CARTER Administarion). In fact, the only firearms we had on-board while I served aboard her ('99-'01) were a couple of 9MM's and a shotgun (the shotgun being used very rarely to clear ice off the bouys if it was too thick for us deckies to break it off with boathooks).

Semper Paratus (Always Ready) is the Coast Guard’s motto; ACACIA’S motto was “Ace of the Lakes.” We (the crew) said other things, which should not be put in print. (talk) 04:52, 30 April 2008 (UTC)Andering J REDDSON (USCG BM³ Reserve/Active Duty SN, '99-'01).

Possible copyvio[edit]

I found two sources that contain passages that appear in this article [6] and [7]. I cannot determine what came first, this article or the webpages. Brad (talk) 18:40, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
